- Comments and insights on the name Athan
I'm fairly certain it is a variant of the Greek Athanasios. However, whenever I try and explain the pronunciation I usually tell people it's like Nathan without the "N".
It's fun seeing people's faces kind of scrunch up whenever they can't understand that his name is "Athan" They think that they heard us wrong and go right to "Nathan" "Aiden" or very rarely "Athen" (as in the Greek city Athens) and we politely tell them they're wrong and repeat the name Athan. Some people just nod and say, oh ok, and you can tell they just don't/can't get it.
